makes 12 balls
While I won’t sit here and say that this is hands-down a healthy dessert, it has become one of our favorite snacks! You have to take some time and make these over the next few weeks. You won’t be disappointed!
Combine quinoa and water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 12 minutes (until quinoa has absorbed all of the water).
Scoop quinoa into a large mixing bowl and add sunflower seeds, oats, dried cranberries, and coconut. Mix well.
In a small pot bring honey to a simmer and then stir in the vanilla extract.
Pour warm honey and vanilla on top of quinoa mixture and stir well until combined.
Let the mixture cool for a few minutes and then add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and sea salt. Mix well with your hands until peanut butter is evenly spread throughout. Try not to melt the chocolate chips though!
Using wet hands, roll the mixture into golf ball-sized balls. Place balls onto a plate or baking sheet and chill for at least 2 hours.
